Bankruptcy Is a Legal Matter

While White Plains residents can file for bankruptcy without an attorney, doing so puts your financial well-being in danger. With over 20 years of experience, the bankruptcy lawyers of Todd Cushner & Associates have helped families and individuals throughout White Plains regain financial stability.

Why Should I Hire a Lawyer When Filing for Bankruptcy?

Many people believe that the Court Clerk’s Office can provide legal advice. However, this is not the case.

The Clerk’s Office Cannot:

  • Explain the meaning of a rule or statute or interpret case law
  • Explain the result of taking or not taking action in a case
  • Help you complete the forms
  • Tell you whether jurisdiction is proper in a case
  • Tell you whether a complaint properly presents a claim
  • Provide advice on the best procedure to accomplish a particular goal
  • Explain who should receive proper notice or service.
  • Recommend an attorney

While individuals may appear “pro se” (without an attorney) in the bankruptcy court, it is recommended that you obtain the legal services of a bankruptcy attorney.  Only an attorney is authorized to give legal advice regarding a bankruptcy case or proceeding.
